"The controls of life are structured as forms and nuclear arrangements,
in a relation with the motions of the universe." ~ Louis Pasteur




IT'S ABOUT TIME

We all depend on the clock & calendar to organize our lives, but what about the timekeeper that gave us both and tells the qualities of time, planetary motion? Why can't we hang that on a wall?



So in 1994 I created the first at-a-glance color graph of your personal planetary cycles. I call it a FutureGraph, which displays the major cycles of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto, for any 12 months of your choice.

Sample FutureGraphs:



A FutureGraph enables you to anticipate and make the most of the super-charged cycles of opportunities & good fortune [jupiter], rewards & consequences [saturn], sudden shifts & major changes [uranus], creative inspiration & evolution [neptune] and personal power & transformation [pluto].

THE PLANETS RULE

Most people think astrology is all about the zodiac, yet without the 10 planets the zodiac is meaningless. Planetary dynamics are the foundation of astrology and our cosmic guide through time, relationships and self-understanding.

sun & moon are referred to as planets for simplicity


Plato's Microcosm/Macrocosm

In the early 20th century, quantum physicist Dr. Niels Bohr discovered that our solar system has the same form as an atom. So what about their function? We know that the atom functions as 'nature's building block', so it stands to reason that the solar system does, too, which essentially validates astrology. But the Experts say 'No way!' and Dr. Bohr's not around to object. But the eyes don't lie.


"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms
of energy, frequency and vibration." ~ Nikola Tesla


Physics has finally caught up with astrology, so it's official: Everything Is Energy. And every moment in time is pregnant with possibilities that manifest through consciousness, in a life-long dance to the music of the spheres.

"The energy of the mind is the essence of life." ~ Aristotle

And with the first breath, all consciousness is imprinted with the celestial dynamics of that moment in time, our electromagnetic DNA. The Sanskrit word for breath is prana, the universal life force believed to originate from the Sun. Prana holds consciousness in this reality or frequency.



"The celestial bodies are the cause of all that takes place in the sublunar world." ~ Thomas Aquinas

"The soul of the newly born baby is marked for life by the pattern of the stars at the moment it comes into the world; unconsciously remembers it and remains sensitive to the return of configurations of a similar kind." ~ Johannes Kepler, Harmonics Mundi


THE ANTIKYTHERA MECHANISM



Did you know that the world's first known computer is over 2000 years old and calculated astrological cycles? it's true! The Antikythera Mechanism was discovered in a shipwreck off the coast of Antikythera, Greece in 1901, and after decades of painstakingly recreating the mechanism, the technological knowledge of the ancients is confirmed.

"If the ancient greek scientists could produce these gear systems 2000 years ago, the whole history of western technology would have to be re-written." - Scientist & researcher Anthony Freeth on the Antikythera Mechanism

Not re-written yet.

THE CYCLES OF TIME

Planetary cycles range from frequent and brief to rare and lengthy. Moon cycles are frequent and last less than a day, while Pluto cycles are rare and last about 4 years. A Saturn cycle lasts about 6 months and occurs every 7 years. Everyone knows the '7 year itch' - the impulse to make a change - though few know that Saturn is the instigator.

A FutureGraph displays the longest, most significant cycles during a lifetime. Each cycle is displayed as waves that build, crest and recede. Peak waves are heightened activity, change and culmination points, and multiple peaks are naturally the most eventful.



For instance, Saturn is the reap what you sow cycle that brings setbacks, added responsibilities and hard-won rewards. So knowing when you're riding a Saturn wave can help you avoid frustration and make the most of the challenges. And just knowing when it ends can be a relief. By contrast, uplifting Jupiter cycles expand opportunities, so you can keep an eye out for them, especially the hidden ones.

FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED



Above is the 2016-17 FutureGraph of the most controversial figure in the world, during the wildest year in memory. Make of it what you will.
[Venus & Mars cycles are minor, so I presently don't include them].



ASTROLOGY IS ETERNAL



The first known use of astrology is lost in time, but the science is eternal. Astrology defines our electric lives through electric time on this spinning blue ball in space.

"Astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity."
~ Dr. Carl G. Jung



Above: A standard birth chart & a BirthPrint

A standard birth chart is impossible for all but astrologers to read, so I designed the BirthPrint, which comes alive with meaning for all.



"Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone." ~ Albert Einstein

All you need to know to read any BirthPrint are 3 essential basics:

PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS

Imagine your mind is a melody. . .

PLANETS are the notes
ASPECTS are their arrangements
SIGNS are the instruments

10 PLANETS: Planetary dynamics are the mechanics of all life experience and everything under the Sun, individually, collectively and through time.

6 ASPECTS Aspects are the conduits that connect and modify the planetary dynamics at specific degrees of distance. The most familiar aspect is the opposition, known mostly as the full moon, when the Sun & Moon are 180 degrees apart and sh^t gets crazy.

12 SIGNS The zodiac is a prism of personality traits that color planetary dynamics with the elemental qualities of fire, earth, air and water.

[keywords for the planets, aspects & signs are further down the page]



Like the 26 letters in a book, a BirthPrint is a unique combination of 10 planetary dynamics. And learning to read a BirthPrint is as simple for an adult as learning to read a book is for a child. And they're equally empowering, an autonomous world of insights that never end.

'Psyche' is classic greek for 'soul'. . .

and a BirthPrint makes every soul an open book. . .



To use a math analogy, knowledge of only your sun sign equates to single digit addition, while knowledge of the PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS equates to basic math, a huge leap in understanding that takes little time. And like math, you can stop at the basics and do just fine, or explore far beyond, into the woowoo realms.



BIRTHPRINT ORDERING INFO:

solar birthprint & natal birthprint


There are two choices of BirthPrint: A Solar BirthPrint and a Natal BirthPrint. A Solar BirthPrint is used if you don't know your exact birth time; a Natal BirthPrint or a Solar BirthPrint may be used if you do know your exact birth time. Click here for more details about a Solar vs Natal BirthPrint.

Every BirthPrint includes an explanation of the three essential basics: planets, aspects & signs, so you can begin to analyze your own BirthPrint. And you may order a BirthPrint with or without a two-page analysis of your BirthPrint by yours truly.

Prices:

Solar BirthPrint & one page personal analysis: $50

Solar BirthPrint without an analysis: $20

Natal BirthPrint & one page personal analysis: $70

Natal BirthPrint without an analysis: $40

Placing your order is a two-step process..

THE 3 ASTROLOGICAL BASICS:
PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS

Most people would be surprised to learn that the founder of Analytical Psychology, Dr. Carl G. Jung, was a closet astrologer whose mother introduced him to the subject as a young child. Dr. Jung based his theory of the three levels of consciousness on planetary dynamics..

CONSCIOUS: sun/ego; moon/emotion; mercury/intellect; venus/creativity; mars/will

UNCONSCIOUS: jupiter/expansive idealism; saturn/contractive ambition

COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS: uranus; higher intellect; neptune/higher creativity; pluto/higher will

Dr. Jung kept this a secret to avoid the academic ridicule that persists to this day. The astrological roots of Analytical Psychology are still unknown or overlooked by most analytical psychologists, who take months and years to gain insights they could gain in a day by analyzing the dynamics of their patients' BirthPrints.



PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS



WITHIN THE PSYCHE
PLANETS: Essential psychological dynamics

ABOUT THE ASCENDANT

The ascendant, also called the 'rising sign', is the sign on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. The ascendant is defined as your persona - it modifies, mutes or intensifies your planetary dynamics.

If you're wondering why I haven't mentioned the ascendant until now, it's because an EXACT birth time is required to calculate its position - just a couple of minutes off can mean false information.

The good news is, the essentials - planets, aspects & signs - do not require an exact birth time.* And though the ascendant is informative, it's not essential.

There are two kinds of birth charts - a natal chart requires an exact birth time, puts the ascendant on the 1st house cusp and involves the 12 house wheel of life. The houses your planets inhabit indicate the areas of life you're most focused on, with each house corresponding to a zodiac sign. For instance, 2nd house is finances/taurus; 4th house is family/cancer; 6th house is service/virgo; 10th house is career/capricorn.

A solar chart does not require an exact birth time, the Sun is always in the 1st house and the houses are a silent backdrop to the planets, aspects & signs. All BirthPrints are solar charts, except by request. A detailed overview and analysis of your ascendant and 12 houses are included with a requested natal BirthPrint.

* The Moon is the only planet that moves more than a degree a day, moving about 12 degrees daily. When an exact or approximate birth time is unknown, using a noon birth time means the Moon won't be more than 6 degrees off, usually less. Not ideal, but workable

"Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance." ~ Nikola Tesla

Astrologers and quantum physicists share one prevailing belief: Eeverything is energy. Astrologers have known this for thousands of years, while physicists in the last century have finally caught up, sort of. Their 'Theory of Everything' is defined as four fundamental forces: Gravity, Strong force, Weak Force & Electromagnetism.




The most celebrated of the Fab Four is gravity; it gets most of the attention but has a shallow reach and sometimes 'it's a drag, isn't it?'

Then there's the strong force and weak force that toil together obscurely to hold the manifest world together. Without them there'd be no way to Let It Be.

But the real star of the Fab Four is E L E C T R O M A G N E T I S M; it's millions of times more forceful than gravity and goes on and on across the universe, possessing and caressing us in an infinite, supercharged embrace.

An obvious example of electromagnetism at work is telecommunications, creating sound and images from apparent thin air! Radio, television, even the words you're reading all manifest through waves and frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum.

"I regard matter as derivative from consciousness" ~ Physicist Max Planck

And each one of those inventions began as an idea in a human brain, the most supremely perfected transmitter and receiver.



Quantum physicists have demonstrated that energy observed is energy affected. Possibility becomes reality through directed will. 'First there was the Word.' Consciousness. And there's still so much to learn about the invisible world of energy.

"The question of all questions for humanity, the problem which lies behind all others and is more interesting than any of them, is that of the determination of man's place in nature and his relation to the cosmos." ~ T.H. Huxley



FREE WILL, CAUSE & EFFECT AND REBIRTH

Free will and cause & effect are the divine laws in which planetary dynamics operate. Though 'luck' may seem random, it's an earned effect, whether or not we remember the cause. The Creator set the planets in motion to manifest the intentions of every soul, then sat back to watch the show, so to speak.



The heavens bespeak the glory of the Lord and the vault of heaven reveals His handiwork." ~ Genesis

Energy never dies and re-embodiment of the spirit is the divine law of cause and effect in action. What goes around comes around. . .and around and around. We inherit the world we collectively create, so we're truly all in this together.

Whether conscious or unconscious, we're driven by the spirit's impulse to grow and evolve. And because free will reigns supreme in both body and spirit, we choose the circumstances we're reborn into, always an echo of past actions and relationships - no square pegs in round holes.



This has been proven by the scientific research of Dr. Ian Stevenson. For over forty years, he investigated thousands of children who remember their past lives. Their similar appearance, personalities and biological traits from their other lives and their accurate, vivid memories of past events and people can't be explained in any other logical way.

Dr. Stevenson's meticulous case studies are all available in print. And his book Where Reincarnation and Biology Intersect essentially proves that spirit memory imprints on DNA.

Since Dr. Stevenson's passing in 2007, his collaborator, Jim B. Tucker, continues this groundbreaking research at the University of Virginia. And he recently released the book Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives.

"The teaching most securely identified with Pythagoras is metempsychosis, or the "transmigration of souls", which holds that every soul is immortal and, upon death, enters into a new body. He may have also devised the doctrine of musica universalis, which holds that the planets move according to mathematical equations and thus resonate to produce an inaudible symphony of music." ~ Wikipedia on Pythagoras



"Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe - a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble." ~ Albert Einstein

EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED

The principles of energy are illustrated in ancient forms across the globe. A carving from Renaissance Italy of the Music of the Spheres resembles the chakra system and the judaic tree of life - the 'sephirot'. And all correspond to the spine and to planetary dynamics. . .


music of the spheres; chakra system; tree of life

DNA resembles the ancient Egyptian caduceus - two serpents around a staff. And the caduceus symbolizes the central nervous system around the spinal column. And space contains nebulas that resemble DNA. The large is reflected in the small and everything is connected, apparently to Kevin Bacon...

GENETIC ASTROLOGY


map section of the human genetic code

Geneticists have been collecting data for a few decades, looking for patterns to help them predict human character and behavior. Astrologers have done the same for thousands of years, yet geneticists who ridicule astrology proudly claim there's a 'leadership gene'.

It's been scientifically demonstrated that DNA consists of shifting photons of light, as reported by David Wilcock in his best-selling book, The Synchronicity Key. So I believe the day will come when the connection between DNA and planetary dynamics is discovered, assuming it hasn't been already.

THE BODY ELECTRIC

In 1998, Robert O. Becker's best-selling book The Body Electric enlightened millions. Becker was a pioneer in the field of regeneration and its relationship to electrical currents in all living things. His work has been expanded into many areas, most notably the healing arts.



KIRLIAN PHOTOGRAPHY

In 1939, Ukranian engineer Semyon Kirlian began to photograph the force field within and around everything, even inanimate objects, like these two pennies for your thoughts..





"The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts.
The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins.
The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever.
Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus?
But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time."

~ D.H. Lawrence

"Yes Virginia, Pluto is a Planet!"
~ Dr. Richard Binzel of MIT

The vote to demote Pluto was underhanded and highly contentious, in arguably the most Plutonian time in recorded history.

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/09/10/astronomer-pluto-should-get-planet-status-again-previous-de-listing-sloppy/
"Pluto is the second-most complex, interesting planet in our solar system behind Earth"

http://space.com/scienceastronomy/060824_planet_definition.html
"[O]nly 424 astronomers were allowed to vote, out of some 10,000 professional astronomers around the globe."

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14489259/
[A]stronomers are already circulating a petition that would try to overturn the IAU decision."

http://phys.org/news/2015-02-nasa-missions-re-elevate-pluto-ceres.html
NASA missions may re-elevate Pluto and Ceres from dwarf planets to full-on planet status.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/5283956.stm
"A fierce backlash has begun against the decision by astronomers to strip Pluto of its status as a planet. [T]he lead scientist on Nasa's robotic mission to Pluto has lambasted the ruling, calling it "embarrassing". And the chair of the committee set up to oversee agreement on a definition implied that the vote had effectively been "hijacked". Dr Alan Stern...told BBC News: "It's an awful definition; it's sloppy science and it would never pass peer review.""



About Astrology & Me

Like millions of people, I was inspired by Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, a 13th birthday gift from my big sister. What a relief to learn at that vulnerable age that it's good to be yourself! I took that book everywhere and read to anyone who'd listen and no one shooed me away. It's said that Sun Signs kicked off the New Age and I believe it.

Mid-70s Boston had lots of great astrologers just bus stops away, so my sister and I attended lectures with Isabel Hickey, Francis Sakoian and others. Then in 1974 astrologer Paul Guercio moved from NY to our town and held classes within walking distance. It was a great time to be 17 and I began a five year apprenticeship with Paul that became a forty year friendship. His keep it simple approach inspired me to create visual tools that help people help themselves.

I hope you find what you're looking for.
